UW Creative Writing Program
The Creative Writing Program at Wisconsin, founded by Wallace in 1978, provides opportunities for writers to study poetry, fiction, play writing, and creative non-fiction. The University offers an undergraduate English Major with a Creative Writing Emphasis, an MFA in Creative Writing, and the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing (post-MFA fellowships), among other opportunities.
The Creative Writing Program supports The Madison Review literary magazine and The University of Wisconsin Press Poetry Series edited by Wallace. The Brittingham Prize in Poetry and the Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry, each consisting of a $1,000 cash award and publication by the UW Press, are awarded annually to the two best book-length manuscripts of original poetry submitted in an open competition.
